One of the most endearing and special festivals of India, Rakshabandhan, or Rakhi, celebrates the best of relationships that existed. That of a brother and sister. And if you're one of us who has had cute, fun and emotional sibling moments (and even more of those physical brawls), you know it's a remarkable bond to share. To celebrate this year's Rakhi, we would like you to celebrate this special day (considering the peculiar situation as well) by being dressed to kill (pun not intended) in these stylish ethnic wear that is under 15k.
So go ahead and celebrate your at-home Rakhi session with your loved ones. Don't forget to check out more styles from our Artisanal Sale that is up to 60% off on homegrown designers that celebrate Indian craftsmanship and textiles.
We are all for understated, sophisticated ethnic styles. This dusk-rose kurta set by Ajiesh Oberoi is the epitome of elegance and poise. Style this outfit with simple pearl-drop earrings with barely-there makeup.
This outfit is polar-opposite to the earlier one. Vibrant, vivacious and fresh, this cobalt blue and silver kurta from Masaba is every extroverted girl's dream. Style it with your favourite pair of oxidized jhumkas and you're set.
Paulmi and Harsh
We're currently crushing on dusk greys and pale silver hues. Pick this subtle-yet-exquisite anarkali from Paulmi and Harsh for an at-home Rakhi ceremony. Complete the look with kundan or beaded danglers with a tiny bindi and winged eyeliner.
Can't let go of black even in this unseasonal heat? We suggest you go uber-minimal with it. And what better than this comfortable set by Mandira Wirk for the same? You can go sans jewellery and makeup to let the outfit do all the talking, or offset the colour with a rich emerald choker.
This printed yellow kurta sharara set is undeniably an ethnic closet must-have. It is equal parts chic and elegant, making it a mainstay of a modern woman's wardrobe. Plus, it's a definite steal-deal. Style it with kundan kadaa and chandbaalis to seal the deal.
Rishi and Vibhuti
Mid-length anarkalis have become our new favourite. Not only are they easy to carry but also are a visual treat. Pick this pastel blue anarkali set by Rishi and Vibhuti for your at-home Rakhi celebrations. Complete the look with a kundan choker set and a ring.
Shyam Narayan Prasad
If you're almost always Team Traditional, we suggest opting for silhouettes that are classic. This angrakha-style green anarkali by Shyam Narayan Prasad is the best pick if you wish for a quintessential style. Style it with temple gold jhumkas and choker set and wear nude brown lipstick to accentuate the look.
Varq by Varun Nidhika
When in doubt, choose white! Always. This fail-proof colour is everyone's saviour at the end of the day. If you can't pick a shade for the Rakhi outfit, pick this asymmetrical white kurta set from Varq by Varun Nidhika. Complement it with vivid-coloured jewellery to offset the monotony and wear your favourite red lipstick.
Is your heart set on a contemporary style? Opt for this edgy purple tunic set by Hrdoyh. Style it with modern oversized hoops and a wais-belt to keep the overall look minimal.
